For current members of the MBSI, the attached picture (to hopefully
replace an earlier one posted by Robbie on the web page) will appear on
the cover of the April issue of the MBSI Technical Journal.
A complete history and "saga" of its acquisition as well as a ton of
technical detail will be included "under the cover". Check it out; it

professional videotape will be produced of the Robot Band in action.

hold it to one hour. The first copy goes (complimentary, of course) to
the staff of MMD who have shown much interest in this one-of-a-kind
antique version of Disney's Animatronics. For a personal viewing of
the Robot Band in action, plan to attend the 1999 Annual MBSI Meeting
in Philadelphia and take the terrific home tours that will be
